There is an awful lot of controversy over distilled water. Some say it is bad for the body, that it leaches minerals out, and is acidic. Others say it is the purest form of water and is the best cleanser for the body.
I have to go with the latter opinion. The logic makes sense to me - rainwater is Nature's distilled water, and I also favour distilled water because of my own experience with it. I had a lot of pain in my joints, had a headache for two days straight and was so fatigued I could barely move. I drank about 1.5 litres of distilled water and the next day I was fine. My energy levels were much higher and the pain was gone.
But don't listen to me, read this article and make up your own mind.

Distilled water is THE water which runs through ALL water-based life forms.
I’ve put together the specific writings of twenty-four doctors who all support the benefits of Distilled Water. The first few pages of Dr.
Hanish’s book (Doctor #24) at the end of this, are really quite stunning. If, after reading this, you think you would like to try distilled water, I
HIGHLY suggest you follow his instructions. EVERYONE we know, who has followed his instructions, has had results of a MOST SUCCESSFUL nature.
Everybody needs to switch their drinking water to distilled water.
A half gallon a day MINIMUM, most preferably a gallon, ESPECIALLY during the recovery period.
*** DOCTOR #1 ***
Here is what Dr. Allen Banik says…
“Distilled water is the greatest solvent on earth. (It is) the only water that can be taken into the body without damage to the tissues.
What we as scientists and the public have never realized is that minerals collected in the body from water are all inorganic minerals, which cannot
be assimilated (digested) by the body. The only minerals that the body can utilize are the organic minerals (from fruits and vegetables). All other
types of minerals are foreign substances to the body and must be disposed of or eliminated.
Today, many progressive doctors prescribe distilled water to their patients. All kidney machines operate on distilled water.” – Allen E. Banik, M.D. Author, “The Choice is Clear”
*** DOCTOR #2 ***
Here is what Dr. Paul Bragg says…
“The greatest damage done by inorganic minerals (hard)—plus waxy cholesterol and salt—is to the small arteries and other blood vessels of the brain (75% water). Hardening of the arteries and calcification of blood vessels starts on the day you start taking inorganic chemicals (and minerals from tap water) into our bodies.”
“When distilled water enters the body, it leaves no residue of any kind. It is free of salts and sodium. It is the most perfect water for the healthy functioning of the kidneys(83% water). It is the perfect liquid for the blood(83% water), the ideal liquid for the efficient functioning of the lungs(86% water), stomach, liver(85% water) and other vital organs. Why? Because it is free of all inorganic minerals. It is so pure that all liquid drug prescriptions are formulated with distilled water. Dr. Paul Bragg, N.D. Ph.T., from his book: “The Shocking Truth About Water”
*** DOCTOR #3 ***
Here is what Dr. James Balch says…
“There is only one water, and that is clean, steam distilled water. No other substance on our planet does so much to keep us healthy and get us well as water does.”
Dietary Wellness; 1993 Dr. James Balch, M.D.
*** DOCTOR #4 ***
Here is what Dr. C.W. DeLacy Evans says…
“Used as a drink, distilled water is absorbed directly into the blood, the solvent properties of which it increases to such an extent that it will keep in solution salts already existing in the blood, prevent their undue deposit in various organs and structures, favor their elimination by the various excreta, and tend to remove these earthy compounds which have already accumulated in the body . . . There is no doubt as to the high value of distilled water used freely as a retarder of the ossifying conditions which appear to constitute the condition of old age.” —C.W.
DeLacy Evans, M.D., in his book, How To Prolong Life
*** DOCTOR #5 ***
Here is what Dr. Teofilio de la Torre says…
“Instead of drinking the hard water of springs or the chlorinated water of the cities, it will be to our advantage to drink distilled water . . . to prevent calcification of the body.”
*** DOCTOR #6 ***
Here is what Dr. Charles McFerrin says…
“Distilled water is ‘empty’ water – a hungry water, a water capable of absorbing body poisons. You have had the experience of trying to use an old post office blotter on the desk. Everybody had used it and it is so full of ink that it will not suck up any more. So it is with a ‘full’ water, a water full of chlorine, aluminum, etc. Such water does not have the capacity of absorbing body impurities.” —Dr. Charles McFerrin, writing in the July 1955 issue of Nature’s Path
*** DOCTOR #7 ***
Here is what Dr. Alexander Graham Bell says…
Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, recognized the health value of distilled water, and claimed that its daily use prolonged his life. Afflicted and bed-ridden with sciatica, Dr. Bell could find no relief for the pain. The attack came just as he was investigating the deposit of salts in the human system. A well-known scientist had written a book in which he said that old age came from such deposits, and that the ills of advanced years were due to the lack of their elimination. He believed that when such deposits went to the joints, man had rheumatism. When they went to the kidneys, he had kidney trouble and stones in the urinary organs; and when they lodged in the arteries, they produced what is called hardening of the arteries. In the same way when such deposits coated the nerves, they caused sciatica. Dr. Bell wrote: “I knew that distilled water was pure. I thought that if I drank plenty of it, I could get rid of some of the salts that were covering my sciatic nerves. I tried drinking it and it worked like a charm. I have kept up my drinking of distilled water and I attribute my almost perfect health largely to it.”
—Dr. Alexander Graham Bell
*** DOCTOR #8 ***
Here is what Dr. Robert W. Flinchbaught says…
“The evidence that distilled water acts as a solvent within the body, dissolving the inorganic mineral deposits, is very important. A growing body of evidence suggests that distilled water dissolves and removes these disease – causing minerals and flushes out the hundreds of dangerous chemicals that have been taken into the body as well. Distilled water is not only free from pollutants, but it apparently helps remove them as well from the cells of the body, thus purifying the body so that it can function as it should. —Dr. Robert W. Flinchbaught, from “Pure Water is Life”
*** DOCTOR #9 ***
Here is what Dr. David C. Kennedy says…
“Even tap water invariably contains a variety of poisons such as chlorine, chloramine, asbestos, pesticides, fluoride, copper, mercury, and lead. The best way to remove all these contaminants is by distilling.” —David C. Kennedy, D.D.S.:
‘How To Save Your Teeth: Toxic-Free Preventitive Dentistry’
*** DOCTOR #10 ***
Here is what Dr. Robert D. Willix, Jr. says…
“If you decide on bottled water, make sure it’s distilled, (however), in the long run you’ll save money if you clean your water at home. It’s more convenient than hauling gallon jugs from the store. The ‘gold standard’ for purifying your water is a system that distills your water and filters it. You have the comfort of knowing there is no chlorine, fluoride, bacteria, viruses, pesticides, or lead. You get nothing but H2O.” —Robert D. Willix, Jr., M.D.:’Maximum Health’
*** DOCTOR #11 ***
Here is what Dr. John Yiamoyuiannis says…
“The home distiller is the best method and also the best way to get distilled water. It is the only reliable home water purification for taking fluoride out of the water.” — John Yiamoyuiannis, Ph.D.:’Fluoride: The Aging Factor’
*** DOCTOR #12 ***
Here is what Dr. Charles Mayo says…
“Water hardness (inorganic minerals in solution) is the underlying cause of many, if not all, of the diseases resulting from poisons in the intestinal tract. These (hard minerals) pass from the intestinal walls and get into the lymphatic system, which delivers all of its products to the blood, which in turn, distributes to all parts of the body. This is the cause of much human disease.” —Dr. Charles Mayo of the Mayo Clinic
*** DOCTOR #13 ***
Here is what Dr. Peter A. Lodewick says…
“The only type of water that seems to be fit for consumption is distilled water, which is water that is absolutely free of any minerals or chemicals. Distilled water is made pure by first being heated to the point of vaporization, so that all of the ‘impurities’ are left behind. Then, the water vapor is condensed. The process results in water that is in its purest form. Distillation is the single most effective method of water purification.” —Peter A.
Lodewick, M.D.:’A Diabetic Doctor Looks at Diabetes’
*** DOCTOR #14 ***
Here is what Dr. Norman W. Walker says…
People who say that Distilled Water leaches minerals out of the body are, therefore, correct only in this respect. This is only 50% of the truth. It is virtually impossible for Distilled Water to separate minerals, which have become an integral part of the cells and tissues of the body. Distilled water collects ONLY the minerals which remain in the body, minerals discarded from natural water AND from the cells, the minerals which the natural water originally collected from its contact with the earth and the rocks. Such minerals, having been rejected by the cells of the body are of no constructive value. On the contrary, they are debris which distilled water is capable of picking up and eliminating from the system. —Dr. Norman W. Walker, from “Water Can Undermine Your Health”
*** DOCTOR #15 ***
Here is what Dr. John Christopher says…
“Water is so valuable to the entire system of the human body that it is wise to use only the BEST. Use pure steam distilled water for health and well being.” —Dr. John Christopher, from “Regenerative Diet”
*** DOCTOR #16 ***
Here is what Dr. Paul Conn says…
“When one drinks impure, dirty water, the body acts as a filter, trapping a percentage of the solids suspended in the water. A filter eventually becomes clogged and useless – fit only to be thrown away. The human body might well face the same fate.
But the basic point – that only distilled water avoids mineral buildups in the body – is an inarguable one. The deposits, which build up in a teakettle from repeated use, are traces of minerals left behind as the water evaporates. Distilled water leaves no such traces – in a teakettle or in the human body. It is true that in most hospitals distilled water is used for newborn infants; distilled water is prescribed for heart patients in many cardiac wards. And it is true that kidney stones and other mineral-like buildups in the body are much more common in the areas where the drinking water has high levels in inorganic minerals – and distilled water has none of those at all.
It is without doubt the best water available to man- and the only truly pure water available in our waste-laden society.” —Dr. Paul Conn, from “Not A Drop To Drink”
*** DOCTOR #17 ***
Here is what Dr. Michael Colgan says…
“The only water likely to be clean is distilled water.” —Dr. Michael Colgan, from “The New Nutrition: Medicine For The Millenium”
*** DOCTOR #18 ***
Here is what Dr. Raymond H. Bishop, Jr. says…
“Distilled water is safe to drink and should have no adverse effects on your health. Distillation merely removes most of the dissolved materials, which are found in all natural waters.” —Raymond H. Bishop, Jr. M.D. Major General, Commander – Medical Corps. Department of the Army, U.S.
Army Health Services Command
Here is what Frank N. Hepburn, USDA, says…
“There is nothing about distilled water that would make it harmful for the body. It may be helpful to remember that distilled water is the only water
available for crews of Naval vessels at sea.” —Frank N. Hepburn, Chief, Nutrient Data Research Branch, United States Department of Agriculture, Consumer Nutrition Division
Here is what Louis Pasteur says…
“We drink 90 percent of our illnesses.” —Louis Pasteur
Here is what Nick Pavlica says…
“I have been drinking distilled water since 1981, almost half of my life, and given the choice, would not drink any other type of water. I recommend
distilled water to all my friends and relatives and would not do so if I didn’t think it is one of the very healthiest things a person can do. After a full body scan, the doctor told me that I have the cleanest arteries of anyone he has examined of my age. And I have never had a broken bone in my body. (Contrary to quack assertions that calcium and other minerals are “leached” from the body!)” —Nick Pavlica, Director, H2o Labs, Ltd.
